As you know, space is an important pillar. It’s not about faking it and throwing all your junk in drawers.
It’s about finding your value and showing it through your surroundings. If you have old dirty socks hiding in your desk drawer, they’re still there. They’re still showing you that you don’t mentally value yourself.
Everything is a reflection of your mental state, from the mess in your garage to the clothes on your back. In fact, if all you buy are clearance items, you’re saying you aren’t worthy of nice things.
Like today’s guest says, too many time we are putting ourselves on sale. Although true value does come from within, our reminders come from without.
On this episode of Redefining Wealth, we are joined by an inspiration of mine, Egypt Sherrod.
Egypt knows more about the importance of self-worth, and how to find your true value, than anyone I know.

The Cliff Notes:
Be in love with everything around you, don’t just tolerate it.
You don’t owe anyone an explanation about how you choose to live your life.
Sometimes you need to go to grow.
We are responsible for our own sanctity.
We don’t realize that we are living out lives on sale and putting ourselves on clearance.
What you wear shows what you believe you are worth.
Just because something held you back before, doesn’t mean it still has to have a hold on you today.
Loving people doesn’t mean you only love people who love you back.
Go room to room, and pack everything up, then only unpack what you need or love.
We do not need more than half of the stuff we surround ourselves with.
You need to realize that the real priority is.
Experiences over things, people over material.
“You can tell where people are in their lives by how their house looks on the inside.” – Egypt Sherrod
